ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been a bit rainy the last few days,  but
not too cold.  At least not as cold as it could
be at this time of year.  Our landlord has of
yet to finish with our mobile home addition
and that doesn’t surprise me,  but he better
get it done before the snows start heavily
falling,  because we will be unable to get out
of our back door due to snow and ice with no
way to plow back there.  I talked to him the
other day and he promised he would get it
done.  I’m in prayer for that.  Anyways,  on
with the journal.  This passed week Judy
and I have gotten our new book published
and it will be out in stores sometime next
month. It’s titled Pearce’s Poetry Pictures.
We should be getting the proof copy some
time this week.  We are ecstatically waiting
to see it LOL.  It will have over 150 poetry
pictures.  Over a 120 of them will be mine
and the rest will be Judy’s  I hope and pray
that it sells.  It would sure help out with our
budget around here 🙂  Next topic.  Judy’s
been doing more and more painting and she’s
getting better every time.  Yep,  she’s turned
into quite the artist and we have combined
our talents together to make picture poems.
Of course I use a lot of the pictures that we
have taken with our cameras,  but ever so
often I will use one of her paintings or she
will use one to make a picture poem.  Yep,
we do stay busy.  I don’t believe I will put all
of the poems I wrote this week in the journal,
being I wrote 30 poems and 19 of them are
picture poems.  LOL it seems that since I
have begun doing picture poetry,  I have
started writing more hehehe.  OK  so next
topic.  We went to Walmart last week and
as usual I took pictures there and to,  but
with the weather as it has been,  most of
the pictures were blurry due to the lack of
sunlight.  It’s 42 F degrees right now with a
high of 47.  That’s not too awful cold hehehe.
Judy is over at her brother’s house again
today to try and finish up getting it ready for
him to come home from the nursing home.
I worry about him coming home to be by
himself.   I’ve got a feeling he will be calling
us quite a bit wanting help.  The family has
been busy getting the house wheel chair
accessible.  They had to knock out a few
walls and widen doorways throughout the
house.  The house is very small,  so not
many people can help.  LOL obviously a
short person built it being that the ceiling
is just about 6 inches from my head LOL.
Ricky has been calling almost every day
checking on the progress.  He’s coming
home this coming Friday.  Keep him in your
prayers.  His health is very bad.  VERY
BAD.  Life is just a moment that none of
us has a clue to the exact point and time
that we will leave these fleshly bodies to
be joined with our perfect bodies as our
spirit moves on.  Anyways,  next topic 🙂
As I’m fairly sure you may have guessed
that it’s just me and the boys again today.
LOL Benny and Rocky are lying down in
their doggie beds right beside me.  Yep,
they’ve sort of gotten used to it.  Rocky
has latched on to me and he never leaves
my side.  Benny does too,  but not quite
as much.  LOL when we go to bed,  Rocky
will lie down in the floor right beside me
for a bit before heading to the other side
of the bed where both of their doggie beds
are.  I guess it could be due to the fact
I am with them more of the time and I’m
the one that plays with them most.  Judy
plays with them,  but not near as much
as I do.  Both Benny and Rocky love to
lie in my lap.  If I’m holding 1,  the other
is right beside me looking up at me in his
little way of saying my turn.  LOL,  they
are so silly.  They love Judy and spend
a lot of time under her feet as well.  We
love our boys.  I fixed Judy and I some
breakfast before she headed out to her
brothers house.  Some scrambled eggs,
toast and sausage.  I’ve gotta take care
of my honey 🙂  We both gave to boys
a couple of sausage links 🙂  The Pearce’s
Place is still kicking in the wind hehehe.
We still spend a lot of time watching all of
our favorite TV programs together.  It
seems like every time we get interested
in a program,  they have a season finale.
LOL go figure.  No matter,  we seem to
always find another program that we like
that fills the spot for a brief.  LOL don’t
we live exciting lives!  OH well,  we get
by.  It’s great that neither of us comes
from a money hungry family and we’re
used to living on very little.  Of course
I’m sure that we have more than many,
as there is always someone that is in
worse shape than you.  You might not
know of them,  but trust me,  they are
there.  Be thankful for what you have,
because there are others out there that
would call you rich.  You might not have
millions,  but what you have might be more
than another has ever fathomed.  Thank
God for the things that you have and all
that you are able to do.  Life is shorter
than you may think.  You could be the
picture of health one day and then out
of the blue,  have an accident and your
health or life is taken away.  Be grateful
for the struggles that you endured,  for
they were tools to make you stronger.
Now,  I believe it’s time for me to be
taking my little journey back through
all that I’ve written here to see if I can
find a good word or phrase that I use for
the title for today’s brand new poem 🙂
So,  it’s away I go to that lil place of my
recollection that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I found
a decent title about a third of the way
back in my rambling LOL.  Now let’s
see what if anything at all I can do with
it.  Here goes 🙂

Kicking In The Wind

Storms come a brewing
many times and agin
and often it’s just like
kicking in the wind.
We fight to keep ahead
as storms come rushing through
kicking in the wind
with a breath turned to blue.
Blessings of a moment
might be all that you need
to help you in a turnstile
to plant a healthy seed.
Kicking in the wind
is a pattern many find
when lessons come as turmoil
weighing heavy on their mind.
Some scenes discovered
might have a better end
that now is just a problem,
kicking in the wind.

There ya go!  LOL I hope you enjoyed the
poem and understood it.  Also I hope that I
didn’t bore you too much with my rambling.
Judy should be home soon.  I know the boys
are anxious for her to come home.  Both of
them are lying on the end of our bed facing
the door waiting for her.  Hehehe,  they are
adorable.  They’ll go ballistic when she gets
home LOL.  Rocky starts spinning in circles
when he gets excited.  I swear sometime he’s
going to make himself sick doing that LOL.
Judy just walked in and as I predicted,  the
boys went ballistic hehehe.  So,  it looks like
it’s time for me to be telling you what I tell
you almost every week and that is,  I wrote
some more poems and haiku.  I guess you
already know that I wrote a ton of poetry
pictures LOL,  although I think I will only
post the 10 none picture poems.  I think
30 poems is a bit much to be posting in my
journal,  hehehe don’t you think.  Anyways
I also wrote 22 more haiku for all of the
haiku lovers out there.  I hope you can
find 1 or 2 of either or both that you like.
Once again,  our Pearce’s Poetry Pictures
will be for sell next month and I will put
a link to the website where you can buy
it then.  So now I believe it’s time for me
to begin my search for that confounded
off switch that is so great at hiding LOL,
NOT,  but before I do that I must wish
you a most wonderful weekend or what
that is left of it and a truly blessings filled
week.  Remember,  Jesus loves you and
we do too.  Ok,  so where are ya hiding
or more to the point,  trying to hide you
little whippersnapper.  Where can that
off switch possibly be hiding.  Hmm that
would happen to be it that I see behind
my Mountain Dew can,  now could it be?
LOL,  For crying out loud,  you’ve had
all week long to look for a hiding spot
and you hide behind the 1 thing that I am
drinking out of.  Try harder next week.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny,  Rocky
and the spirit of Milo Pearce

P.S  A link to Judy’s new book as at
the end of the journal along with the
others.  Enjoy 🙂

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

The Dancer

She moved like liquid water
as she flowed across the stage.
Her steps were not so youthful,
but she shown the greatest age.
She wore a dress of white
as she danced into my heart.
I saw her in this magical time
a wonderful work of art.
Her daughter was getting married
on this wonderful day and time
while the moment was well written
as a fabulous design
and then after the wedding
we danced with joyful glee
as we held each other tightly
and danced in one agree.
The times were found as magic
as the dancer held me tight
and we danced acoss the stage
as true love was in sight.
Her daughter was also dancing
with her wonderful married man
while the dancer held me closely
as we danced then hand to hand.

A Stormy Life

A day with rain
and clouds of gray,
a stormy life
will seem dismay.
Yet the rains
that pour on down
might have hope
that can be found.
A stormy life
of times regards
might just be
a deck of cards.
The dealer being
a day with strife
a stormy day,
a stormy life.
The episodes
of each we see
might be lessons
for you and me.
All those moments
times details,
a stormy life
might fill its sails.
Then the ship
of thereunto
might display
a better view.
A stormy life
will surely show
a time with peace
and a big rainbow.

A Little Faith

The smallest seed
of faith and time
can become
the best design.
For with Jesus
and His ways
there will be
some better days.
A little faith
throughout your life
can become
much less of strife.
A scene exposed
you did not like
can become
a healthy hike.
A mountain stream
of love and care,
a little faith
can fill a prayer.

The Christmas Star

That special scene
that many see
up on top
of the Christmas tree.
The Christmas star
is such a sight
as it glistens
day and night.
With the lights
red,  green and blue
the Christmas star
displays its hue.
Often shining
brightly so
maybe with some
store bought snow.
The Christmas star
brings into light
The Saviors birth
that wondrous sight.
The seasons glory
wondrous view
of Jesus Christ
for me and you.

Giving Thanks

Troubles will often
become plain to see,
but God can do wonders
with you and with me.
Each trial we encounter
is a tool to be seen
as we walk through the ages
to find what they mean.
Thankful is a moment
that we find in our heart
the end of our troubles
and goodness to start.
No matter the pathways,
no matter the miles,
I’m thankful for seconds
that turn into smiles.
Even though sadness
is often the view,
I’m giving thanks now
for what God will do.
For God is my rock
and my firm solid ground
that gives to me great strength
when trouble comes around.
Yes I’m giving thanks
for His unending ways
that helps me through sadness
to find better days.

Pastimes Of Peace

Now is a second
a minute is gained.
then hours gather
for more time attained.
The pastimes of peace
of a moments desire
can be a thing
or a place you acquire.
Peace is a blessing
that many let go
and find only anger
to daily bestow.
The seasons of life
in a whirlwind of days
might become trouble
of a daily amaze.
Yet within Jesus
your anger can cease
with moments of prayerful
pastimes of peace.

Chance

Shadows essence
day and night
shows the chances
wrong and right.
Seeming rightful
might not be
a given chance
for you or me.
Often doorways
open wide
just to tempt
your life inside.
Yet some doorways
hold the path
away from now
your aftermath.
Life is questions,
answers too
that by chance
what’s right to do.
Don’t let liars
to romance
and fill you with
an empty chance.
Look beyond then
see what’s right
found inside
God’s Holy Light.

That Faithful Night

A snowy night
with Christmas dreams,
sugar plum fairies
and wondrous scenes
is such a time
that kids remember
Christmastime
amidst December.
That faithful night
on Christmas Eve
a child will seek
to just believe.
The sight of Santa’s
suit of red,
they dream of him
at night in bed.
That faithful night
that comes to be,
a child might try
to look and see.
Yet old Santa
will come and go
that faithful night
through winters snow.
With Rudolf’s nose
that shines real bright,
he guides old Santa
that faithful night.

The Light Of God

As each day passes
our lives are counted
minutes that prospered,
moments surmounted.
The light of God
is a guide through life
to help us each one
find a way from strife.
The past is remembered,
but not held to be
the way that we are
and the way that we see.
The light of God
is a doorway through time
that glistens His beauty
so wondrous Divine.
Our blessings uncountable
are pages to turn
as the light of God
shows what to discern.

Beginnings End

Without beginnings
there is no end
for things must start
to then transcend.
The things we think
and things we do
beginnings end
is thereunto.
Within our sight
we might not see
beginnings end
of history,
but as time goes
it shows so true
beginnings end
within our view.
So then as time
is found in sync
beginnings end
has common link.
Found as moments
around the bend
lessons gather
beginnings end.

Haiku
for Oct 29,  2016

Tomorrow’s a day
that will soon become our past
as life passes by.

Judging by color
or ethnic of another
can lose some good friends.

Challenges on life
come with surprises of time
that we might not see.

Life is emotions
found within our minds journeys
as mountains and hills.

Reality comes
as the patterns we have tried
turn out good or bad.

Life within a breath
is breathed in with emotion
that many can’t see.

A fast boat through life
might sink in the deepest part
due to a rogue wave.

Now is a moment
that ones will worry about
no matter how small.

A life’s destruction
might be a mere mystery
to those that are blind.

A turbines story
becomes a life of desire
that’s spinning around.

A persons money
often becomes who they are
and it’s often false.

Digging a deep hole
for the burial of lies
might come up real short.

Disdained decisions
can become nightmares to see
as your choice was wrong.

Falling from the sky,
a raindrop has not a choice
of where it will land.

Forces of nature
can become our choice makers
of where we’re to live.

The present time seen
might not show all that there is
and flourish regret.

Various changes
leave various emotions
of how we react.

The hands of a clock
display many seconds found
of which we worry.

The vitals of truth
needs the emotional heartbeat
of conscience and love.

Our troublesome days
are often not the worst days,
but the most noticed.

A thriving liar
will continue down that path
even when they’re caught.

The trees standing tall
can sometimes smother the young
preventing their growth.
